This Lok Sabha election showed the India National Congress and its allies such figures which they would have never imagined to have seen. They faced a defeat so bad that they even didn’t reach the number of seats needed to have an opposition leader in the Lok Sabha. The greater trouble being faced by the INC is the inner turmoil among its eminent leaders and their conflicts with each other. One such example can be seen presently in Rajasthan. Facing a huge defeat in the Rajasthan Lok Sabha elections within six months of being elected to power in the state, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has sounded a discordant note and put the blame of his son Vaibhav Gehlot's defeat on PCC chief Sachin Pilot. Ashok Gehlot’s son Vaibhav lost the Jodhpur seat to Gajendra Singh Shekhawat of the BJP by a huge margin. In an interview to the ABP News Gehlot said that Sachin should take responsibility for the defeat of Vaibhav as it was his insistence that led to the decision of letting Vaibhav contest from the Jodhpur Lok Sabha seat. Jodhpur had been Ashok Gehlot’s secured seat for long. He has won 5 Lok Sabha elections from the Jodhpur seat. As Congress lost all 25 seats in the Lok Sabha elections within six months of forming the government in Rajasthan, a bitter blame game has ensued among the supporters of Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot. Congress president Rahul Gandhi too pulled up Ashok Gehlot to have neglected the party campaign in the state and focus only on his son’s campaign in Jodhpur. Now it will be interesting to see what course of action does INC take in regard to the matter.
